Bob and Sharon have owned and operated Emily’s Used Books since 2005. The bookstore grew from what was originally just a dream of Bob’s. He had a love for books from a young age which was fueled by his father’s passion for books. What really got Bob hooked was his first encounter with a Louis L’Amour book. He ended up reading sixty within a single summer as his passion for good literature grew. Bob served for many years in the Marine Corps and accumulated a mini-library of his own. After parting ways with the Marines Bob had a personal collection of over 9,000 books!
